Wyoming Recap (February 2017)

At the end of February, I spent ten glorious days in the mountains of Wyoming. Let me tell you, it was much needed! What did I do while I was there? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING…..

Well not really, but for the most part! You have all heard me say that Wyoming is my happy place and it seriously is. Just look at this gorgeousness…

That one time I tried to ride a mule…

Other possible title: Facebook versus Real Life

So let’s start here….

Possible Facebook Status: Great day of horseback riding in the mountains! πŸ˜ƒπŸ’—


Reality: This horseback ride lasted 20 minutes for two of us. πŸ˜πŸ˜­πŸš«πŸ΄πŸ‘ŽπŸ»

Now let’s see if I can do this justice, as it’s all a bit of a blur….

Wyoming Recap! (Part 2)

Continuing on!

After a few days with my Aunt and Uncle, we headed over to Pinedale and stayed at the Rivera Lodge Bed and Breakfast! It was super cute and the kids saw a moose in the kitchen window! The lodge is right in town, but the river runs directly behind it and apparently the moose are frequent visitors on the river path. They also provide a really nice breakfast in the morning πŸ™‚

Wyoming Recap! (Part 1)

At the end of July, we decided to take a last-minute 10-day trip to Wyoming, and as usual, it was awesome! We took two days to drive out there and two days back (And let me tell you, driving with two kids is no joke. All you parents out there – I finally get it, lol). If you haven’t checked out my last post – you better check out that life update. Anywho, it was great to set our own schedule and make our way out there. It was even more fun to show everyone why I love Wyoming so much and even check out some “new to me places.”

I took so many pictures (no surprise there), we’re going to break this recap into parts!

Driving across the mighty Mississippi!

Memorial Weekend Recap

Memorial weekend my boyfriend and I drove up to Drummond IslandΒ for a little R&R. Having lived in Michigan forΒ as many years as I have, I’m surprised I haven’t heard more about this island or been there before! It’s located past the Mackinaw Island bridge and as far east as you can go before you have to board a quick ferry (with your car! A new experience for me!) over to the island. From there, you’re practically in Canada – and your phone will keep reminding you of that – international roaming anyone?

On the way there, as per usual we had to stop for some road-trip type food and I found out that KFC has snack size famous bowls! Did you know this was a thing? Why didn’t anyone tell me!? 8 points of deliciousness!
